FESTIVAL PREVIEW: ROADBURN 2019

 

Today is the day! After the pre-fest party last night, the sold-out Roadburn 2019 kicks off today, and for the next four days in Tilburg, Netherlands will smash you a full slate of bands. Major artists like Sleep, At The Gates, Thou, Cave In, Old Man Gloom, Daughters, Myrkur and more will perform in intimate settings you won’t see at any other festival. The fest even added last minute local artists Doodswens (Dutch for Deathwish), a two-piece black metal group that we’ll have our ears peeled for. Some of the the can’t miss groups include two sets by Sleep, three sets from Mono and the Jo Quail Quartet, Pharmakon, Crypt Trip, Emma Ruth Rundle, Twin Temple, Crowhurst, Hexvessel, Craft, Triptykon & Metrolope Orkest (new song performance ‘Requiem’) Drab Majesty, Street Sects, Bosse-De-Nage, Thou & Emma Ruth Rundle, Svalbard, Conjurer, Soft Kill, Imperial Triumphant, Cave, Birds In Row, Bossk, Coilguns, Old Man Gloom, Crowhurst & Gnaw Their Tongues, Ulcerate, Marissa Nadler, Wrong, Daughters, and many more. Ghost Cult is here with our preview of essential bands day by day. Just our humble take on whom we would prioritize (so please no comments about whom we chose or omitted). Really with a festival like this, there is something for every type of music fan, and most of these artists represent the best of the best in the world. Still, for those unprepared, check out the following day-by-day breakdown.
